Unable to identify actual problems the nation faces, liberals often attack abstract concepts like “greed” instead. Bernie Sanders, a man somehow leading the Democratic polls, has made ending “corporate greed” a key issue of his campaign.
Now personally, I consider myself quite greedy and yet it’s never made me a dime richer, so perhaps there’s more to the story than “greed” when it comes to the economic woes the nation faces. During all the talk about greed, Bernie Sanders also calls for extremely high taxes. This meme illustrates just how backwards it is to complain about “greed” while wanting to take everybody else’s money through taxation:
The meme brings a quote from columnist Thomas Sowell to mind, “I have never understood why it is “greed” to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else’s money.”
In fact, what people often fail to realize is that even the poor in America look rich to the impoverished in developing nations, leading the Harvard and Columbia educated historian Thomas Woods to pose the following question:
Maybe the progressives pushing for higher taxes don’t realize that nothing is stopping them from mailing the government a check. Maybe they’re just greedy like the rest of us.
